Liber evangelistarum : manuscript, [ca. 1175-1200]

Author: Tatian, ca. 120-173; Victor, Saint, Bishop of Capua, 6th cent; Lacaita, C. C. (Charles Carmichael), 1853-1933, former owner; Lacaita, Mary, d. 1924, former owner.
Keywords: Latin; Diatessaron; Tatian; Ammonius; American manuscript; Gospel harmony; The Forgotten Gospel
Language: Latin
Collection: opensource
Notes: This is a manuscript written in an archaic hand, with abbreviations implicit to the latin of the 12th century. OCR based files will be of limited use. Another file, Facsimile.pdf, (121.7 Mb), is added to this which is trimmed to page size, and scaled to 100%, so that if printed without scaling, on to A4 paper, the images will be of natural size, according to the ruler incorporated in the original scans. I have notified Harvard University Library of my actions, and my reasons. I have received no response, thus I assume they do not consider that they have grounds for objection to my actions. See below.

Rights: The document itself is of course public domain. The photographic images, if they were a work of art would naturally be a matter of reasonable copyright, but as they are in effect just a mechanical process, this is difficult to justify, specially as the dedication of the document to Harvard University states that there shall be no restriction upon its use. I have received an acknowledgement from the library, but as yet no comments. Url of original source:
